I said I'd trust a stranger with my life (like if he had to save me from an accident or help me climb a mountain) but I wouldn't trust him with my bank account number.
Why? My life is more important than my bank account...
I think it's a choice thing and situation, more than trust....like if you were in an accident, or in danger, you have to trust them, or rather you have to depend on them to get through, let's imagine you're in danger, if stranger ask you for bank account as a condition to save you, will you give your band account? And if you were safe walking on the streets, a stranger came to tell you that you can trust him with your life, would you trust him? So I think it's choices and situations thing, more like a kind of social behavior, not so much as a trust.
When I climb mountains, once to the glacier, I was stumbling and moving on the ice to climb to a safer place, afriad of falling into the gaps, then a man beside me asked me to take his hands and he'll hold me up onto the safer ground. I did so, but can I say I trust him? I think I depended on him, I had a sense of security to him, it's not "trust". I have to depend on someone in that situation, I depended on him cause he made me feel safe---as social behavior, that doesn't mean I trust this stranger unless I get to know him.
Trust between people is more like an inner sharing...among my friends, family, more or less from one to another, but it stops in front of certain borderline. We're aware of that.
Mostly judged by promises, if those people specially not much of a friend, when I just get to know them, and they don't keep their promises, not like being forgetful but go back on their words, for even once, I'll never trust them, as individuals...just came across a few...duh
